Add some sunshine to your winter by jetting off to one of these much loved winter sun destinations. Choose from an active water sports holiday, an exotic tour of a far off place or just kicking back and relaxing while topping up on some much needed vitamin D.
High on the winter sun hit list are diving at some of the world’s top dive sites in Egypt or Thailand, or soaking up the sights in Mexico, Argentina or Brazil. Go on safari in Tanzania or South Africa, or just chill in a Caribbean paradise in St Lucia or Barbados. If you don’t mind a long haul flight, join the thousands exploring the beaches, vistas and warm welcomes of Australia and New Zealand.
For something a little closer to home, the Canary Islands are bathed in sunshine all year round, making your winter sun break just a short flight away.

First of all, thanks for your stay.
1.Why you wrote that you did not know that water, electricity and cleaning was not include in the rental price?
You (Neil) clearly wrote before your stay: "Yes i accept this, i did not read all of this quote, i am sorry"
Message send with every quote before booking:
The security deposit has to be paid on your arrival in cash, 2000 Baht (-10 days) or 4000 Baht (+10 days) refundable upon check-out.
Cleaning, -service and -laundry 1000 Baht, water (35 baht /m³) and electricity (5 baht / unit) will be charged at the low cost of the utility company.
2. If you had a problem in the bathroom, why you don't ask the manager to fix the problem during you stay, as agreed in the 'rider', why complain about this after your stay?
Please be serious in reviews. Thank you.
